Endhiran, the Tamil sci-fi film initially titled Robot, stars Rajnikanth in a double role and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The film is being directed by Sivaji director S. Shankar.
A source working on the film revealed the plot. “Rajnikanth plays a scientist and the robot named Endhiran.” said the source.
“The film is set in 2200 AD and he is a famous scientist who is in love with Aishwarya. But later, he is asked to create robots. Trouble ensues when his creation, Endhiran, starts to show emotion and falls in love with Aishwarya. There is a major twist in the film and this is the USP of Endhiran.”
Work on the film began on February 15, 2008 in Chennai, with a photo shoot. But the actual shooting began only a few months ago. A little before New Year, Aishwarya was shooting with Rajnikanth in Chennai.
This film has a budget of Rs.120 crores and will be released on April 14, 2010.
